Gen 1 or Gen 2?

Factory told me they made circa 10 gen 1 cars worldwide. Not sure about gen 2, probably a few more.

I have a gen 1, the car Clarkson drove in the “Best driving road in the world” episode.

The day I picked it up in 2008 when I lived in Switzerland:



Now in UK with factory big wing:

What’s the fb group?

Trying to find a decent group.

I’ve just bought a gen 2 SL

In my opinion, they are the last true bread of drivers super car. If it’s true there are only 16, glad one is mine!

The above information is wrong. I am I that group too. The assertion was made based on results in howmanyleft.com

That site is very sketchy in terms of reliability of data.

Firstly, you cannot search for LP570-4 Superleggera. If you enter Gallardo, it only gives you Superleggera, not LP570-4. (Although it does show LP570-4 Spyder, Super Trofeo Stradale and Editione Technica)

According to that website there no Superleggera in the UK pre 2009, which implies there are only LP570-4 versions. However, there plainly are a number of 2008 Gen 1 Superleggera in the Country.

Secondly, it implies there is a distinction between eGear (listed as A) and manual (no A suffix). However there is obviously blurring here with the data, because based on that data there are only 2 eGear cars and 16 manual ones. To my knowledge there are no manual LP570-4 Superleggera in the UK at all. There are certainly more than 2 eGear cars.

Thirdly, when I looked about 3 months ago, there are 13 Superleggera of any type. So somewhere another 3 have materialised (possible imports and on the VVS stock list)

How Many Left is just not clear enough or reliable enough, i’’m afraid.

Doubt there are so few gen 2’s in the UK.

This site is useful, for gen 1’s, says there are/were 37 in UK out of around 300 VIN numbers it knows about (around half of gen 1 production). My car is listed under its old 57 plate; like many of these sites it must be difficult to keep it up to date.
